Industrial Love

DIY, Interior Design

So before I moved into my new place, I think I made a promise to my readers that I would be making  a lot of furniture and sharing the how-tos with you all. Well I apologize for breaking that promise. I haven’t really made much. I think I got entirely too far ahead of myself and didn’t realize how much time things would take and how fast I needed certain things.

But slightly not breaking my promise.. I did make a few pieces of furniture and did some little crafty things that I enjoyed.

So first, thanks to pinterest, I have a new found love of palletes. Ya know, those wooden things that warehouses use to move things around on fork lifts.. yup those.

They are so versatile and can be made into anything, plus I just love anything made out of wood. Well, I made my bed frame out of these nifty palletes. Not so creatively difficult- its pretty much just laying them down and plopping a mattress on top, but I love it. Here’s what it looks like:

Second, I am obsessed with is industrial furniture. Some examples of the things I would have built if I had the skill, the time or the money..

I just love these shelf ideas, but after figuring out that must of this stuff would cost me close to a month in rent I decided to scale down and found this little gem:

I decided to make this into a nightstand. I may make myself out to be this huge do-it-yourselfer but I really have no concept of how much all this do-it-yourself supplies costs. So these nightstands ending up costing me a little more than I bargained for. Oh well, I love them and will keep them for a long time. What do ya think?

I used 12″ iron pipes (x8) and floor flanges (x16) and 2 pieces of plywood. And then times that all by 2 because I made one for each side of the bed =)
